Send a postcard without leaving the beach


With our Postcards App, you can send postcards to anyone you like, anywhere in the world when you have internet connection.

Just use a photo taken with the camera on your iPhone*. We'll convert your image into a high-quality physical postcard, including friendly hand-written font, and then deliver it to the domestic or international address of your choosing.


  • Choose an image directly from the app's special occasions gallery - perfect for many milestone events and celebrations.
  • Use your own image from your iPhone^ and choose to add one of our decorative borders if you wish.
  • Easily send your postcard to one person or to many. You can input address information directly or import instantly from your phone.
  • Include your own personal message, up to 10 lines long.
  • Postcards are printed on 16cm x 10.6cm high-quality card. We use a glossy finish to ensure your image is vibrant and doesn't fade.
